Governor Cuomo Signs A5113A/S2665B

posted in: News | 0

Late in December, Governor Cuomo signed a bill that would authorize district attorneys to file a petition on behalf of a humane society, animal shelter or other impounding organizations to seek security for the reasonable costs for caring for seized animals from individuals convicted of certain animal cruelty. This is incredibly important for shelters that take in the animals from abuse cases and then spend hundreds and thousands of dollars to care for those animals.
